We make thousands of decisions every day, from minute choices we don’t even know we’re making, to great, agonising deliberations. But when every decision we make is life-changing, the way we reach them matters. And for every decision, there is noise. Co-authored by three eminent thinkers, Noise teaches us how to understand all the extraneous factors that impact our decision-making – and how to combat them to improve our thinking. Filled with new science, illuminating case studies and practical examples, the skills outlined in this book are relevant to private or public institutions, schools, hospitals, businesses, judges – and to us all.

Daniel Kahneman is known for his work on the psychology of judgment and decision-making. Olivier Sibony is a writer, educator and consultant specializing in strategic decision making. Cass R. Sunstein is an expert on administrative and environmental law. They are in conversation with Angela Duckworth, Professor of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, where she studies grit and self-control.
